Traveling Trunk Show Times

Last week was so much fun with traveling to two local quilt guilds and sharing a trunk show of my quilts!!!  Last Saturday morning I got to spend time with the Dixie Quilt Guild in St. George, Utah and these ladies were just amazing!!!  They had so many wonderful questions and it was just great to be there.   And don't they meet in the coolest place!!!   This is the old Electric Theater in downtown St. George and it is is just so neat ;) 

And because the boys and dad were on a camp out, the girls came with me to the Trunk Show ;)  This was the first time I tried taking them along and I am happy to report they stayed nice and quiet just off stage and colored while I presented :)  Maybe it had something to do with the bribe of going out to lunch afterwards, either way, it worked out fantastic!!!

And then on Wednesday, we headed north to the Bryce Canyon quilt guild.  They meet at beautiful Ruby's Inn just outside of Bryce Canyon and even though they are a smaller group of ladies that come from all around the area, they are just amazing!!!    I was thrilled to spend the evening with them and even more excited when it came time for Show and Tell and one gal that was in my class in February shared her finished Moroccan Lullaby quilt top!!!  Isn't it just gorgeous!!!!

Because it was the evening, we spent the night and then the next day hiked in beautiful Bryce Canyon!!!  What a treat :)    And you notice I keep saying we, that's because Jacob came along with me!!!!   This is the first time he has been able to come to one of my Trunk Shows and it was so great to have him along, he even helped and held the quilts!!! 

And then, of course, there is always the unpacking part.   I will admit, I put this off until Saturday.   It never ceases to amaze me how long it takes to get them all put back nice and neat where they belong.  But at least I have learned from experience and now take pictures of the stacks of quilts, so I can refer back to them and know right where each one goes ;)   Ya, I am a neat freak, what ya gonna do ;)

It was such a wonderful time getting to share my quilts with these two guilds.  I know I say it all the time, but there is just so much joy in being able to share my love and quilting.  And these trunk shows are such a wonderful way to get to answer so many quilting questions, whether it is about inspiration, or technique, or color or quilting choices, it is always fun!!!

I hope you all had a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!!  Now that things are all put back together in my sewing room, it's time for me to get stitching :)  See ya tomorrow!!!
Pin It!


  1. I am so jealous of you quilters who have made enough quilts do a trunk show! That means you must have enough quilts around your house already and these are all extra! :D You've probably already done a post about this, but do you decorate your home with a lot of quilts? That is my dream someday.

  2. Sounds like a wonderful weekend - and being able to take your children along, a special bonus. Glad to hear I'm not the only one who loves everything in order around and in my home. Love when things are 'at hand' :)!!

  3. Glad you had two successful trunk shows and you were able to get some quality family time in, too! Of course the girls were well behaved. They’re yours!

  4. How fun and great to be able to take some of your children with you. We visited Utah last year and Bryce Canyon was my favorite of all the parks we hiked in.


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
